Apart from the bad picture being potrayed about media personality Betty Kyallo, there is the truth and better side of her.
A woman full conscious and promoter of family values.
Fully supporting her daughter Ivanna at all costs. This was evident during the trying period when her daughter was sick and at the same time juggling with a demanding job as a TV host.
She has also being always on her siblings side. Offering support, advise and love required from an elder sister. Above all Betty has never shied from showing her love and bond with her parents.
At work she has always being at her best to deliver beyond all expectations. Her colleagues fully recognise and share in the opinion that she is a team player if not leader.
She has also ventured in the beauty industry running the exclusive Flair Hair parlour. Thus empowering fellow kenyan by offering direct employment to more than 30 people and also mentorship to thousands of youth.
Her mentorship has led to her mammoth Instagram following which stands at an amazing 1.9 million as at today.
These all and other achievements are thought to be the source of all the mudslinging from gutter presses that has been witnessed lately. This is so unfortunate and setting a bad predicament to the youth looking at Betty as a role model.
But as the wise men say, “When the going gets tough its only the tough that gets going”. No sort of destruction can stop the over zealous Media personality who seems to have a well set goal in her career and bright future.

Not everyone wants to get flowers, go to dinner, watch a movie or anything “romantic” on Valentine’s day!
Some couples decide to put smiles on the faces of the needy people who don’t have anyone to treat them as their valentine.
With that in mind, Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko and his wife Primrose Mbuvi spent their Valentine’s Day visiting patients at Mama Lucy Hospital.
The couple visited the patients and gifted each of them a red rose flower.
Mothers who had just delivered their babies were surprised with a basin full of baby items including diapers and soaps.
The Nairobi County first lady was seen interacting with the mothers, holding their babies and asking of their children’s well being.
“Make sure you breastfeed your child for at least six months,” she told one of the mothers as they proceeded to another wing. During their visit, a female patient begged the governor to help her offset her medical bill.
Sonko reached into his pocket and pulled out a few Ksh 1,000 notes and handed it to her!
We need more Mike Sonko’s in this part of town! Don’t you agree?
